Summary:
This is a thorough study of the Egyptian temple and its complex character from a prominent Egyptologist. Despite the prominence of ancient temples in the landscape of Egypt, books about them are surprisingly rare; this title answers the need for a study that goes beyond temple architecture to examine the spiritual, economic and political aspects of these specific institutions and the dominant roles they played.
